Actually I'm playing Pokemon Fire Red, on GameBoyAdvance.

I have just won the battle with LT.Surge and I'm getting some money, so I want to know if there is any way to save it into a Bank, or something similar to don't lose it in case I lose some battle.


There is no real way to 'bank' any of your spare money in any (main-series) Pokemon games as far as I am aware.

Your best bet to not lose in the first place, which may mean over-training one or two Pokemon in your team so that they are sufficiently over-leveled for any challenging foe that crosses the rest of your team. And though it may be annoying to reset a gym's puzzles, leave before fighting the leader for the badge and heal up at a Pokecenter. The various trainers in a gym may not be particularly strong, but they can chip away at your preparedness for the leader, who often have at least one higher-leveled Pokemon that may be challenging.

The only other things I can suggest is to invest in some escape ropes (to leave caves and such when your party is low on health), and to spend the extra cash on the best Potions available, Full Heals, Full Restores, and Revives. Buying these will help ensure future battles go better so that you don't lose. Also, hang on to all the Gold Nuggets and similar items that have no use beyond selling until you need the money.

If you are planning on getting any Pokemon or TMs from the Celadon Game Corner, consider turning your cash into coins at the service desk ASAP.

    Several of the games have a Bank of Mom. I am checking now to see if this exists in FireRed... – Dave Johnson Apr 28 '15 at 13:23
  • @DaveJohnson the Bank of Mom was only included in Silver/Gold/Crystal and the corresponding remakes, which are HeartGold/SoulsSilver. I can't remember another game which had it. – Y U NO WORK Apr 28 '15 at 13:27
  • Regarding healing items - if you are in Celadon City, visit the Celadon Department Store an go to the roof. There are soda machines where you can buy Fresh Water (200 $) Soda Pop (300 $) and Lemonade (350 $). All three can be used to heal your pokemon (water - 50 HP, Soda - 60 HP, lemonade - 80 HP). These are much better healing items for mid-to-late game, especially if you look at the prices for the regular healing potions. – 5pike Apr 28 '15 at 13:29
  • @DaveJohnson Oh... right, I forgot about that, probably because I hated it... 'Mom' kept wasting my money on things I didn't need or want. – Trent Hawkins Apr 28 '15 at 17:36
  • Thanks! time to spend it in potions, drinks an similars ;) – Shudy Apr 28 '15 at 18:34
